Ok, let's do a quick review:

The F-15E STRIKE EAGLE is leading the way with SIX votes to it's credit. Congratulations McDonnel Douglas for being the designer of such a great aeroplane, seconded by the escort fighter the P-51 MUSTANG with FIVE votes to it's name! The rest are tailing behing and somewhat lacking in supporters. By the way, it's Be 109, not Me.

Its kinda hard to ask wether the F-22, F-35, Gripen, and the Typhoon are the best fighters, because they havent proven themselves in aerial combat.
whereas all the others have

It's more hypothetical, really... The planes will most likely never have to prove their full potential...

Then why vote for them? Great planes are decided because of their actual combat ability, not their hypothetical one

Vote based on what you think as the plane with the most potential. The most combat ability within your reasoning.

To correct you, its Su-7 Fitter and yes A-6 Intruder is right.


In fact, there is another version of the Su-7, the Su-17/20/22, that also carries the name Fitter. So it depends to which of them you refer, Raptor.

And, Do you really think the F-104 is one of the best planes during Vietnam?? Don't you think the Thud was much better, or the Phantom II??

Finally, what improvements does the A-4SU carries?? I wanted to compare it with the A-4AR. Have you heard about it??

Hm. Addressing the A-4 question.

There are the F-404 engines, a full computer revamp, to enable more efficient weapoms disposal, etc. A better radar (i think) and a nice sweet higher payload. Oh, yes, and a higher top speed and manueverability.
